DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Add: WEST VIRGINIA, YOU ARE MY HOME (Dickens)
From: Becca

Hi! I'm looking for the lyrics to this song (by Hazel Dickens?). Some approximate lyrics are:

West Virginia, you are my home
West Virginia, where I belong
In the dead of the night, in the still and the quiet
I slip away like a bird in flight
Back to those hills, the place that I call home

Home, Home, Home, Home
I can see it so clear in my mind
Home, Home, Home, Home
I can almost smell the honeysuckle vine....

Thanks!

Wow, that's so weird -- I just did two Hazel Dickens songs in the Women's Song Circle.

I have a CD with this lovely song on it, from which I could probably transcrible the lyrics, but I am so crazy busy that I can't get to it right now. Why don't you email me in a week or so, and remind me? I'd be glad to do it.

Becca:

My Irish Band did this years ago. Being from West Virginia it was a natural. We're still there by the way.

You have the Chorus (WV) and bridge (Home, Home, Home) dead on.

It's been years now since I left there
This city life's 'bout got the best of me
I can't remember why I left so free
All I wanted to do, all I wanted to be
But I can sure remember where I come from.

Chorus

I've paid the price for leavin'.
This life I've got's not the one I thought I'd find.
Let me live, love, and let me cry,
But when I go, just let me die
Among the ones who'll remember when I'm gone

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

I do hope this is complete and correct! Good singin!

Don of Poteen
